In honor of Cinco de Mayo, likely GOP nominee Donald Trump tweeted about how he loves Hispanics. The proof? A taco bowl supposedly made at Trump Tower.

Twitter wasted no time exploding with reactions.
@realDonaldTrump C'mon man, even your Mexican food has a wall.

So we're left to assume that Trump loves Hispanics because they make him taco bowls.

Christ, have some dignity. Get America Ferrera to post the word "bae" on your Instagram or something. https://t.co/UBbVWQwk4w

Romney pilloried for "binders full of women." Four years on, nominee literally posts a photo eating a taco bowl & says, "I love Hispanics!"

Samantha Bee, queen of burns, chimed in with a Facebook post that's since gone viral.
The best taco bowls are made by hardworking immigrants who don't like being called rapists by a rich prick. I love inauthentic Mexican food!Posted by Full Frontal with Samantha Bee on Thursday, May 5, 2016
But the taco bowl might not have come from Trump Tower after all:
Just got off phone with Trump Grill, says they don't serve taco bowls. It's not on the menu online.
